SAQA 2010 Auction Quilt

SAQA 2010 Auction Quilt, by Alison Schwabe.

Our blog offers information about ourselves and the work we do, as well as interesting textile creation activities within Latin America.

Este blog ofrece información acerca de nosotros(as) y el trabajo que hacemos: creación textil, diseño y actividades en Latinoamérica.

Latin America is a huge geographical zone of many nations including Mexico, Central and South America, and many Caribbean cultures.

Latinoamérica es una zona geográfica gigantesca, la cual incluye a México, Centro y Sur América y muchas culturas Caribeñas.

Traditionally rich in textiles by region, it is also a melting pot of playful contemporary textile culture, which includes both design and creation.

Tradicionalmente rica en textil de acuerdo a cada región, también es una mezcla de culturas juguetonas contemporáneas, la cual abarca tanto el diseño, como la creación.

May I invite all creators of Latino textile art, to submit material to this blog and this way, we can project to the rest of the world.

Invito a todos los creadores y creadoras del textil artístico latinoamericano, para que envíen sus aportes a este blog y de esta manera, proyectar hacia el resto del mundo.

    • ¡Hola Liliana! Mi intención es dar a conocer la creación textil de Latinoamérica y promover el acercamiento del creador latino y el resto del mundo. Con todo gusto te publico acerca de tu trabajo, tus exhibiciones, etc. Para ello, necesito fotos coloridas y texto manipulable. Yo hago mi propia edición y luego publico.
      ¡Que estés bien!

  4. Hi Elizabeth, I am guessing “the three year” means, the Triennial Textile Art of Today?
    Now you would have to wait until 2017 to respond to a new call to participate.
    In the meantime, you can see all the info about the 7th WTA International Biennial, which will take place in Uruguay in 2017.
    I will be informing about this biennale here!
